Zongjun Hu


HPC Scientific Programmer/Systems Administrator

Dr. Zongjun Hu joined the Center for Computational Science (CCS) of the University of Miami as Assistant Scientist in November 2007. Dr. Hu is a researcher that has significant expertise in schedulers and parallel computation. He has expertise in LSF and Moab and has been a regular contributor to the Maui/Torque projects. He is also a contributor to the CRAN and Linux kernel projects specializing in parallel computing and system scheduling. Dr. Hu also brings domain expertise in computational fluid dynamics, aerodynamics, and turbomachinery. He supports all Fortran, MPI, R and CUDA programming for the HPC core. Through the Intel early adopter program Dr. Hu has also started work on porting several CFD codes to the new Intel Phi accelerator. joining CCS, Dr. Hu worked in Acxiom Corporation and GSS Enterprise Network Solutions, Inc. where conducted research and development in Linux network product, database, web service, grid computing, NAS. He received his Ph.D. degree from the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at the University of Miami.
